business correspondent for "u.s. news & world report." i want to ask you about the tax increase if there is no deal and tax rates rise, when would workers begin to see that reflekr reflected in their paychecks? when does the pain start? >> this is not one tax hike. this is about nine different sets of taxes. and the one that would go up right away is the payroll tax. that was cut temporarily in 2 009, cut by two percentage points and will go back up by two percentage points and that would come out of workers' paychecks right off the bat. it would add up to something like $60, $70 a month for the typical worker. we hear about all the tax rates that are going up, that actually wouldn't involve money that is in people's pockets until they actually pay their taxes or do their tax returns the following year. because that's when they would have to calculate the amount they owe and whether they paid enough taxes in 2013. so the good and bad news about that is that is not going to affect people right away, but that also means they can put that one off for a long time and we could go --

of the economy. the average number of people in the u.s. seeking unemployment benefits over the past month fell to the lowest level since march of 2008. it's a sign that the job market may be healing. the report included a caveat though for the latest week. president obama declared monday a holiday for federal workers and many state offices followed suit and were unable to provide complete data for last week's jobless claims. gregg: well a very important ruling over the so-called contraceptive mandate in the health care law. the u.s. supreme court has denied accident -- the request by the christian owned hobby lobby, for a requirement to provide contraception coverage and the fines that come with that if the company does not comply. jonah goldberg, editor-at-large at "national review" and fox news contributor. jonah, what do you make of the supreme court saying, we don't want to decide this? >> yeah, sort of a more complicated story. it was really justice sotomayor as the justice who oversees the 10th service denying request for injunction to basically stop the law being implemented for the hob

number of attacks, members by afghan security services against nato or u.s. troops assets in the region. so far this year 60 of those attacks, that is almost three times the number we saw in 2011. right now 65,000 american soldiers inside afghanistan plus thousands more of military contractors and civilian contractors that is what joseph griffin was. he was there working inside afghanistan trying to help the afghan police rebuild and that is when he was killed by a woman in her 30s. she was a member of the afghan police, an iranian national. somehow she up haved through the vetting process of the afghan police and the fact that there are so many holes in the vetting process that they would miss, this woman, for example, who had forged documents is making a lot of people very concerned about what happens going forward, especially over the next couple of years as the u.s. draws down towards 2014 when they turn afghanistan back over to the afghans. that is when you're relying on the afghan security services to go ahead and try to take the lead in fighting the taliban, also in fighting al q

. >> this isn't even the first time that a u.s. president has asked for gun laws on assault rifles and those gun clips. what is different this first time around? and will that make a difference? >> i think the difference here is that children were involved. i don't care where you live, who you are, whether you're a gun enthusiast or not. you look at this and say we've got to find a way to prevent this from happening. you know, the nra is saying you need trained security people to protect these schools. other people are saying, no, we need no more guns. is it realistic to think we can eliminate all guns? probably not. you know something? i think we're at a tipping point now where people are saying we need new laws. we need something. something to prevent this. and my feeling is, in the end, they're going to go after these assault weapons and high-capacity clips so that somebody can't go in with a gun that can fire large amounts of ammunition. i think probably that's an area that everybody -- most people will agree with now and then we can move on to the harder questions later. >> sounds like a pl
